How about her?

Beacon.

Still working on the exact powers and stats and stuff (for champions)


WOW!!!

That has to be one of your best pics yet. I love it. Keep 'em coming. Are you going to write her up for M&M eventually, or just Champions?

Hey Storn ...
Is that circle hand drawn or did you use a vector program to make that?

Beacon is an awesome piece of work, as usual, and I will definitely 'steal' her for one of my campaigns. :)

Beacon looks like Energy controll (light) with create objects
or
more likely, light based powers stemming from that wand of hers. I dont know why, but she seems vaugely Norse to me.

i just noticed all the Greek letters in her energy circle. cool. :D

[edit]but they don't appear to spell out anything...

also, there's a symbol there i can't place... it's first used around 4 o'clock between a capital Psi and lower-case Alpha, and then again at around 8 o'clock between what looks like a lower-case Theta and an capital Phi.

at first i thought it was a lower-case Delta, but it doesn't squiggle in the right direction. :wink: and there's a definite small Delta around 11 o'clock.

I agree, but she also looks like a sorcery or cosmic powered heroine with light based effects.

I was subdividing some of the letters to get new shapes. I wasn't trying to spell anything... I was purely operating on a visual realm. I probably should have tried out spelling something like "Ward of Light" or something... but that is too much intellectual work for a poor pencil pusher like myself.

Beacon looks cool. Consider her stolen-ah, 'borrowed'.

Here is Luke, gadgeteer, clone of Locke and head builder for the Moreaus. As a clone of the most powerful telepath the planet has... Luke got the short end of the stick... having only a photographic memory.

I love the look of the gadgeteer but I just wish you would have had him fiddling with some gadget. Oh well. The pic is still cool.

The next four are from a monthly game I'm in. A horror campaign using Witchcraft from Eden Studios as the system, but borrowing many elements from Unknown Armies and tons and tons of other sources. This is the campaign my friend Rick has wanted to run for years... he is pulling out all the stops.

While not superheroes, they are modern. Maybe someone can use them as supporting cast NPCs.

This is my character George Phillappoussis, brooklyn cab driver, dabbled in stage magic and now is having visions.

Here is Ken, transplanted from his native west coast of San Fran to the wacky, wilds of NYC. Master of eastern and western medicine, as well as the martial arts.

He has the most superheroy look to him... sorta.
